Police bail

Release from police custody. This procedure is used when investigations, whilst someone is in police custody, have not gathered enough evidence to charge them. The person being released does not have to pay to be released on police bail, but would have to return to the police station for further questioning when asked. Bail is likelyto be given unless the crimes is too serious or there is a risk that someone will behave badly if released.
